“Being renovated (slowly), but they've done the right bits first”
Reviewed 20 June 2010

Lovely little hotel just five minutes from the Hotel de Ville metro station. Delightful, attractive (the French are so gorgeous) and helpful reception staff (though not 100% fluent in English so please be patient, or -- better yet -- brush up on your French). Unrenovated rooms may seem a bit shabby but do not let this disappoint you! The beds, the linens, the towels and the windows are all new. Thus, although you may notice a water-stained ceiling in your room, you will probably sleep better here than anywhere else on your trip! (We definitely did.) Very nice breakfast (8 euros per person), with the reception staff cooking your eggs to order!

Reviewed 11 March 2010

This hotel is a few paces away from the Place Terreaux in the Presque-Isle of Lyon, so very handy if you are going to the Opera or going for a tour round the old town. It is a tall narrow hotel with only a door at street level and there are steep flights of stairs between each level so not for the infirm or disabled! It used to be a very old fashioned French hotel with different loud flowery wallpaper on each wall but it is being renovated in plainer colours. We had room 316 on the third floor which seemed to be partially renovated, with new very comfortable beds and white cotton linen, duvets and new towels, also a flat screen TV.

However the room (one of few twins) was rather cramped in design and hard to squeeze between the bed and the desk on one side. There were some signs of trouble with damp at ceiling level, and the bathroom was tiny and had a half size bath as well as bidet and usual other items.

On the plus side there was plenty of hot water and the breakfast buffet at 8 Euros quite reasonable with fresh bread, croissants, cereals etc. Not a huge range but more than a basic continental. It was a also very quite and the new beds ensured a good night's sleep. You might want to check that you are getting a renovated room if you stay here.

The main thing about this hotel is that it is good value for the location, rooms are around 57 Euros (for 2 people). It's not the first word in luxury but if you need a central location for maybe just one night's stay in Lyon and can manage stairs, you could do worse. There are dozens of restaurants, cafes and shops all around and the local navette bus stop is right outside the door. It is also just round the corner from the Beaux-Arts museum.
